into Friday morning and enhance the risk of flooding. That is all from

:00:00.:00:00.

us, Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:16.

North. The headlines tonight. A report into Hull's flooding two

:00:17.:00:19.

months on calls for better defences at the city's docks. This has shown

:00:20.:00:42.

us the vulnerability. I'm at Hull's tidal barrier which stopped

:00:43.:00:44.

thousands of properties from flooding. A teenager is found guilty

of murdering his grandmother. This has been a horrible crime. Police

:01:02.:01:05.

praise for the one woman fight against anti`social behaviour. After

:01:06.:01:08.

her on`screen debut, we meet Scunthorpe's youngest TV star. A

:01:09.:01:26.

five`day forecast follows. It's two months since the highest tide in 60

:01:27.:01:30.

years bought flooding to large parts of Hull and tonight a report says

:01:31.:01:33.

the city needs a better flood warning system and better

:01:34.:01:44.

protection. More than 150 businesses were affected by the water and

:01:45.:01:47.

without the tidal barrier 19,000 homes would have been flooded.

:01:48.:01:50.

However even the barrier only just did its job, the report highlights

:01:51.:01:53.

how it came within 40 centimetres of being over`topped. Here's our

:01:54.:01:56.

correspondent, Paul Murphy. This is Hull's Albert Dock ` identified in

:01:57.:01:59.

today's report as the city's weak point during the tidal surge.

:02:00.:02:02.

The water which overtopped the defences here inundated hundreds of

:02:03.:02:04.

local businesses. Including this one which is still recovering. We look

:02:05.:02:28.

at the rest of the country. Something has to be done. The

:02:29.:02:35.

rapidly unfolding events of December the fifth were simply not predicted.

:02:36.:02:39.

The cost of it all is still being assessed. The report says Hull

:02:40.:02:43.

experienced its highest tides for at least 60 years. That damage was

:02:44.:02:58.

caused to 149 homes and 155 businesses in the Albert Dock area.

:02:59.:03:01.

But that Hull's tidal barrier prevented an estimated ?230 million

:03:02.:03:20.

of damage. There is a sense the city just escaped catastrophe. The

:03:21.:03:23.

Environment Agency and Hull City Council say there were already plans

:03:24.:03:25.

to defend this vulnerable Albert Dock area ` but they're being

:03:26.:03:29.

brought forward as a matter of urgency. We are looking at all

:03:30.:03:51.

defences for improvement to ensure all future events can be managed.

:03:52.:03:53.

The report urges greater co`operation and communication

:03:54.:03:55.

between all the authorities, a familiar theme in a city which is no

:03:56.:03:59.

stranger to the devastation of flooding. Paul Murphy, BBC Look

:04:00.:04:03.

North, Hull. Paul is live for us at the tidal barrier in Hull for us

:04:04.:04:06.

tonight. Paul, just how close did Hull come to a much more serious

:04:07.:04:21.

situation? Very close indeed. You get a sense of the city's

:04:22.:04:48.

vulnerability. They need to defend the city and inward investment. I'm

:04:49.:04:52.

joined now by Philip Winn from the Environment Agency. What have you

:04:53.:05:21.

learnt? This was the bigegst flood since 1953. We will learn a lot. We

:05:22.:05:50.

need to get warnings through quickly and we found levels on the coast

:05:51.:06:05.

were higher than indicated. Is long`term protection possible? A

:06:06.:06:50.

temporary solution is in place and we will work to put in a full

:06:51.:07:01.

scheme. The tide came close to the top but the barrier did a great job.

:07:02.:07:22.

I think we can do some of both town and country but people are our

:07:23.:07:26.

priority. We want to hear from you on this story. A teenager from Hull

:07:27.:08:05.

has been found guilty of murdering his grandmother and the attempted

:08:06.:08:07.

murder of his grandfather. 17`year`old Lewis Dale admitted the

:08:08.:08:10.

killing but claimed he was suffering the effects of taking the drug

:08:11.:08:14.

mephedrone. He was convicted by a jury at Hull Crown Court this

:08:15.:08:41.

afternoon. Emma Massey reports. Lewis Dale as he was found guilty on

:08:42.:08:45.

a ten to two majority. He admitted stabbing his grandparents. He denied

:08:46.:09:04.

murder. I thought it would be manslaughter. Humberside Police said

:09:05.:09:43.

today's verdict was right. There are no winners. I do not feel pleased

:09:44.:09:58.

and this has been a horrible crime. Council workers have held

:09:59.:10:00.

demonstrations in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire over salaries, which

:10:01.:10:03.

unions say, are below the living wage. Some councils, like City of

:10:04.:10:06.

Lincoln pay their staff the living wage which is ?7.45 an hour. But

:10:07.:10:10.

campaigners like these in Scunthorpe want local government workers to

:10:11.:10:13.

receive a ?1 ncrease to their hourly rate. 6000 people can affect

:10:14.:10:39.

spending and everybody benefits. And last night we were talking about

:10:40.:10:42.

calls for people working in the public sector in the North, to be

:10:43.:10:46.

paid less than those doing the same job in the South. Thank you for your

:10:47.:10:49.

responses... Neekie from Grimbsy says: "I moved to Grimsby from

:10:50.:10:55.

Portsmouth two years ago and I am doing the same job as a teaching

:10:56.:10:59.

assistant. I work six more hours a week for ?2000 less a year. I don't

:11:00.:11:03.

think it's fair. Chantelle e`mailed us to say: "What about people who

:11:04.:11:07.

want to move onto bigger and better things? I would like to earn enough

:11:08.:11:11.

to be able to move somewhere like London, but cutting our pay is going

:11:12.:11:14.

to make things a lot more difficult". Bunty has been in touch:

:11:15.:11:18.

"It makes perfect sense to pay public sector workers less in areas

:11:19.:11:21.

of high unemployment. It would undoubtedly create jobs". Around 100

:11:22.:11:27.

people have been at a public inquiry being held about the Lincoln Eastern

:11:28.:11:34.

bypass. The aim of the scheme, which is due to get underway later this

:11:35.:11:37.

year, is to ease congestion. Highways and Planning officers have

:11:38.:11:40.

been hearing people's objections to parts of the planned road. The head

:11:41.:11:45.

of a group of six Lincolnshire schools has been suspended and is

:11:46.:11:49.

currently under investigation. Carol Clare is the Chief Executive of the

:11:50.:11:52.

Phoenix Family of Schools, which runs five academies in the Boston

:11:53.:11:56.

area. The organisation has confirmed that she's been suspended following

:11:57.:11:58.

an allegation from an anonymous source, which is currently under

:11:59.:12:15.

investigation. Pam Roddis was well`known in Bridlington. She'd

:12:16.:12:19.

holidayed in the town for one week every month for the past ten years.

:12:20.:12:27.

Four days later, Pam died of a brain haemorrhage. Police say the theft

:12:28.:12:31.

can't be linked to her death, but that the stress may have affected

:12:32.:12:46.

her health. She became close friends with Wendy Clarke. She liked to go

:12:47.:13:10.

down to the harbour and watch the world go by. A cyclist took her bag

:13:11.:13:32.

and mobile phone. Four days later, she died.This CCTV footage shows the

:13:33.:13:35.

cyclist they believe was responsible for stealing her bag.. I we can

:13:36.:14:07.

catch the male responsible it will help the grieving process. Pam's

:14:08.:14:09.

friends and family say the incident blighted her final days and it's

:14:10.:14:24.

important the suspect is caught. He spoiled the last few days of her

:14:25.:14:27.

life. Pam's friend, Wendy Clarke, ending that report by Tolu Adeoye.

:14:28.:14:40.

Still ahead tonight: Fighting the name change ` the fans who want to

:14:41.:14:44.

keep 'Hull City' put their case to the FA. We got to say what our

:14:45.:15:09.

members wanted. The MP for East Yorkshire is in the running for a

:15:10.:15:12.

very different parliamentary win. Sir Greg Knight's cat Tommy is on a

:15:13.:15:16.

short list to become Westminster Cat of the Year. The winner will be

:15:17.:15:20.

decided by a public vote and the result will be announced later this

:15:21.:15:51.

month. It's a moggy! Do you have a part in Open All Hours? Police have

:15:52.:16:19.

praised a Hull woman's campaign against anti social behaviour and

:16:20.:16:42.

drug use on a City Council estate. Mostly fine this evening but another

:16:43.:17:03.

wet night. Overnight rain will give way to a dry period but then more

:17:04.:17:16.

rain. Temperatures seven to eight Celsius. Thursday should be

:17:17.:17:28.

brighter. Ann Hodges has been displaying photos of used needles

:17:29.:17:32.

and blood stained walls in the block of flats she lives in off Holderness

:17:33.:17:35.

Road before Hull City Council asked her to take them down because they

:17:36.:17:39.

were too graphic. The police say it's important people report issues

:17:40.:17:41.

to them so they can investigate. Jessica Lane reports. Needles in the

:17:42.:17:45.

stairways, bloodstains on the walls. Look at this chart. Rain tonight

:17:46.:17:48.

with more rain on Thursday. These just some of the photos taken since

:17:49.:17:52.

last summer to try and give the Council and police evidence of how

:17:53.:17:55.

bad things are in the flats. We live here, the things you see on the

:17:56.:17:59.

pictures are happening here, it's not safe to send grandchildren to

:18:00.:18:35.

the chute room where we put rubbish. You don't know who or what is

:18:36.:18:42.

happening. Her neighbour Alice, who is in her 80s, says things have got

:18:43.:18:50.

worse in the last few months. When I've locked the door and bolted it,

:18:51.:18:54.

I just daren't answer it, you don't know who's going to be there. It's

:18:55.:19:03.

not the first time people have taken matters into their own hands. A few

:19:04.:19:07.

years ago, residents on a Scunthorpe estate got a steel fence built

:19:08.:19:10.

around their homes to protect them from crime and disorder. It's

:19:11.:19:13.

important people don't put themselves at risk, say police. But

:19:14.:19:16.

information passed on can help them to act. So they say Ann did the

:19:17.:19:37.

right thing, the right way. We have increased patrols and asked

:19:38.:19:40.

residents to provide information. Police say patrols have increased

:19:41.:19:42.

around Denaby Court recently in response to reports from residents

:19:43.:19:45.

and say they'll continue to work with the council to deal with

:19:46.:19:48.

criminal activity and even evict those who cause trouble. We want to

:19:49.:20:05.

hear from you on this story ` is it up to us to help the authorities

:20:06.:20:09.

track down people who commit crime and anti`social behaviour? A man who

:20:10.:20:23.

was arrested after armed police were called to a village in Lincolnshire

:20:24.:20:29.

has been charged with two offences. Mark Anthony Hall of Thomas Street

:20:30.:20:32.

in Sleaford was arrested in Ruskington yesterday for failing to

:20:33.:20:35.

appear at court in relation to assault offences. He's also been

:20:36.:20:38.

charged with two cases of leaving petrol stations without paying for

:20:39.:20:42.

fuel. Plans for a skate park in Lincoln are being opposed by

:20:43.:20:49.

campaigners. After a search taking years, the City of Lincoln Council

:20:50.:20:52.

says that land known as Hobblers Hole is the right location. But

:20:53.:20:57.

opponents of the proposed site argue that it's become a peaceful area for

:20:58.:21:09.

the whole community. It should remain that way. Two parents from

:21:10.:21:13.

Hull have described how they feared the worst for their baby who needed

:21:14.:21:26.

complex heart surgery. Julia was born with a hole in her heart, and

:21:27.:21:30.

needed to be transferred from Hull's Royal Infirmar 100 miles to a

:21:31.:21:33.

specialist unit. The medical teams who transferred her in a mobile

:21:34.:21:37.

intensive care unit are featured in a new BBC series this evening. And

:21:38.:21:40.

there will be more on baby Julia's story on Children's Emergency Rescue

:21:41.:21:43.

on BBC Two at eight o'clock. Fans opposed to a proposed name

:21:44.:21:46.

change by Hull City owner Assem Allam have met with members of the

:21:47.:21:50.

Football Association. Dr Allam has submitted a plan to change the name

:21:51.:21:54.

of the Premier League club to Hull Tigers. Fans' groups, including the

:21:55.:21:57.

"City Till I Die" campaign, have been to Wembley Stadium explaining

:21:58.:22:00.

why they disagree with the alteration. Our sports reporter

:22:01.:22:06.

Simon Clark is here, what happened at this meeting? This document was

:22:07.:22:34.

presented with a video. The name change has caused a storm. We had a

:22:35.:22:56.

lengthy discussion in which members' views were put. When are we likely

:22:57.:23:16.

to hear about the FA's decision? Greg Dyke has not said so, sometime

:23:17.:23:20.

in April? And Grimsby Town will play Cambridge United in the semifinal of

:23:21.:23:23.

the FA Trophy. The two`legged tie begins at Cambridge's Abbey Stadium

:23:24.:23:26.

on the 15th of February, before the return match at Blundell Park a week

:23:27.:23:30.

later. And Lincoln City are playing tonight. The Imps are hoping to make

:23:31.:23:34.

it two home wins in four days when they take on Nuneaton. BBC Radio

:23:35.:23:37.

Lincolnshire has commentary in a Sport Special from seven o'clock.

:23:38.:23:44.

It's one of the most popular programmes on television and the

:23:45.:23:47.

latest star of BBC One's Call The Midwife is from North Lincolnshire.

:23:48.:23:53.

At just five weeks old, Annabelle Christian from Bottesford joined

:23:54.:23:56.

actors like Miranda Hart and her on screen mum, Eastenders star Lacey

:23:57.:23:58.

Turner, as they filmed scenes in Lincoln. Sarah Walton has more. At

:23:59.:24:02.

home, seven`month`old Annabella is clearly comfortable in front of a

:24:03.:24:05.

camera, no surprise for a little girl who made her TV debut as a

:24:06.:24:10.

newborn, thanks to a contact in the business. My friend has children in

:24:11.:24:28.

commercials.The filming took place at the Lincoln castle back in July.

:24:29.:24:44.

Here's Annabella as baby Peter, the newborn son of a woman in prison

:24:45.:24:47.

played by former Eastenders actress Lacey Turner. You can't have him!

:24:48.:25:09.

She was lovely and chatty. Like a professional she was paid for her

:25:10.:25:13.

work and needed just two takes, not letting the fame get to her. She

:25:14.:25:29.

slept! So is she a Hollywood actress in the making? Maybe! And it may be

:25:30.:25:39.

a good career choice, she seems to love the camera. Let's get a recap

:25:40.:25:53.

of the national and regional headlines. Prince Charles meets

:25:54.:25:58.

flood victims in Somerset ` some have been cut off for more than a

:25:59.:26:17.

month. The Environment Agency says improving defences is a priority.

:26:18.:26:28.

Tomorrow's weather: It will be unsettled, and windy with showers

:26:29.:26:39.

and longer spells of rain. Top temperature eight Celsius. We have

:26:40.:27:03.

had reactions to the interview. Where will the money come from?

:27:04.:27:30.

"Scrap HS2". "Maybe if the government did not donate to

:27:31.:27:39.

overseas countries." "Don't live next to a river." Goodbye.
